It was terrible! My friend picked this up for me for lunch, I didn't ask, she just stopped by for lunch. Anyway, there was SOOO much grease, I couldn't even attempt to eat it.

Wishbone fried chicken never disappoints. The people that work there are friendly and the chicken is delicious. Being southern, I sometimes believe that eating fried chicken on Sundays is in our genes and, sadly, Wishbone is not open then nor is it open at night, so if you want some of that yummy chicken, you have to get it early...

It's very small, only 2-3 tables & mostly takeout. If you want great fried chicken & great slaw, this is the spot. Don't expect atmosphere, but I get lunch here whenever I can. Great fired chicken, did I already say that?

Not much in the way of looks or atmosphere, but great chicken livers. Only wish they were open longer hours! Would love to be able to go there after 6:00 some evenings, but they close at weird hours. Sweet potato pie is to die for and the staff is always friendly.

Wishbone has the best fried chicken in town we get it to go because the space us very limited. The price is reasonable and they have very good cole slaw. They have hash brown potatoes instead of fries they are very good.

The best fried chicken in town. Must get the tri taters too. Small inside area, most get take out. The owner is local, and native to Newnan.

Love this place! They have THE BEST Tri-taters !!! I've been going here for 20+ years and it never gets old. Great food & friendly people. Not much of a place to sit and eat but we always get it to go. Highly recommend Wishbone if you're ever in the Newnan area!!

Locally owned fried chicken restaurant, seems to have been around forever. Chicken seems to be mostly cooked to order, as we had a bit of a wait and were okay with that. Limited seating and very good simple menu.

So glad we stopped on our way back north. Very friendly staff and great food! Fried green tomatoes, okra, gizzards! Just like grandma used to make! Not fancy, but clean enough.

Thank ChazMadison
